COOKSBURG, PENNSYLVANIA (PRWEB) September 29, 2012
This Columbus Day, the Gateway Lodge will be offering a smorgasbord of fun and entertainment for the three day weekend, October 5th through 8 th. The package includes three nights in a luxury suite, breakfast each morning, live music and dancing, and an appetizer buffet on Saturday evening, all for $699 per couple.
Leather & Lace will take to the stage on Saturday evening to serenade guests with a mix of modern and classic country music. “We have roots so deep in many different musical genres that some other flavors will no doubt show up as well,” said the band. “One of our strengths is our tight harmony. There is something special when three siblings are on stage together, we just know what the others are thinking, and it shines through in our final product.” Auditory snippets and more can be found at http://www.facebook.com/LandL.Rocks.
